F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. --

Lieutenant Col. Katherine Mack took command of the 320th Missile Squadron during a change of command ceremony June 18, 2019 on F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo.

Mack previously served as the Director of Operations for the 321th Missile Squadron.

Lieutenant Col. George Chapman, outgoing 320th MS commander will be a senior U.S. Fellow at the George C. Marshall European Center for International Security Studies in Garmisch, Germany.

A change of command ceremony is a tradition that represents a formal transfer of authority and responsibility from the outgoing commander to the incoming commander.

The 320th MS has a long legacy, and Mack noted that they have provided more than 20,000 days of continuous nuclear combat capability since its inception.

“That number is inspiring and a little intimidating,” said Mack. “We are not the first to face challenges or adversity in executing our mission, but we carry on the legacy of those who came before us, relying on our professionalism, values and teamwork to overcome the challenges we see today and the ones yet to come.”
